    Discuss The Family Chao by Samantha Lan Chang.
    Join via Zoom:https://us06web.zoom.us/j/82812556516

    The residents of Haven, Wisconsin, have dined on the Fine Chao restaurant's delicious Americanized Chinese food for thirty-five years, content to ignore any unsavory whispers about the family owners. Whether or not Big Leo Chao is honest, or his wife, Winnie, is happy, their food tastes good and their three sons earned scholarships to respectable colleges. But when the brothers reunite in Haven, the Chao family's secrets and simmering resentments erupt at last. Before long, brash, charismatic, and tyrannical patriarch Leo is found dead--presumed murdered--and his sons find they've drawn the exacting gaze of the entire town. *zm*

    7:00 PM - Monday - Meeting Room

    An unforgettable evening of singing...together! All voices are welcome.

    This is an in-person program. Wearing a face covering is optional at all library events. Optional singing masks will be available for all attendees.

    All voices are welcome and wanted. No previous singing experience required. All songs are taught in a call-and-echo, aural tradition process.

    Group singing is one of the most ancient technologies of belonging. The research suggested that our ancestors survived by singing together. They weren't performing or recording. They were creating literal bonds of connection with their voices, which according to modern science also fills our brains with oxytocin and serotonin, hormones associated with trust & bonding.

    Community songleaders Ian Carrick and Kira Seto are reinvigorating our culture with singing. Somehow we've mostly forgotten that singing together is our birthright. After a decade of searching for accessible forms of community-based music and recovering his own voice, Ian founded Open Hub Singing in 2016 after discovering a widespread North American cultural revival of aural tradition singing.

    Discuss The River You Touch Making A Life on Moving Water by Chris Dombrowski. Join via Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83993645150

    Dombrowski begins the highly anticipated The River You Touch with a question as timely as it is profound: "What does a meaningful, mindful, sustainable inhabitance on this small planet look like in the Anthropocene?" He answers this fundamental question of our time initially by listening lovingly to rivers and the land they pulse through in his adopted home of Montana. Transplants from the post-industrial Midwest, he and his partner, Mary, assemble a life based precariously on her income as a schoolteacher, his as a poet and fly-fishing guide. *zm*

    Discuss The Invisible Husband of Frick Island by Colleen Oakley. Bring your favorite Winter Read too!

    Sometimes all you need is one person to really see you. Piper Parrish's life on Frick Island -- a tiny, remote town smack in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay -- is nearly perfect. Well, aside from one pesky detail: Her beloved husband, Tom, is dead. When Tom's crab boat capsized and his body wasn't recovered, Piper, rocked to the core, did a most peculiar thing: carried on as if her husband was not only still alive, but right there beside her. She cooked him breakfast, walked him to the docks each morning, met him for their standard weekly night dinner date at the One-Eyed Crab. And what were the townspeople to do but go along with their beloved widowed Piper?
